People frustrated with BJP!s misrule: Gaurav Gogoi
SIVASAGAR, Oct 26: Deputy Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha, Gaurav Gogoi today lambasted the BJP while campaigning for the Congress candidate for Thowra LAC Manuranjan Konwar in Raichai Karam Sanskriti Kendra near Demow.
Gogoi said that the people of the State are now frustrated with the five-month misrule of the BJP-led government due to the soaring price rise of all essential commodities and the appalling indifferent attitude of the BJP leadership towards it.
He said that the BJP government has sold out national properties to a handful of industrialists. A vote for the BJP in this by-election will give that total freedom to raise the prices of commodities more and oppress the common people even further. He urged the voters to vote for Monuranjan Konwar to save the country from the alleged divisive and communal forces hidden behind the !Lotus" symbol. Gaurav Gogoi also took part in a bike rally with Manuranjan Konwar in and around Demow today.
In another meeting organized by the Congress in Barajabari on Sunday, the APCC president Bhupen Bora severely criticized the Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma-led government on several counts. He said that six months back, Sarma said that the government will institute a probe into the alleged involvement of foreign terror groups in funding the Ajmal Foundation, but once the elections was over, it was seen that the present CM was pausing for a photograph with Badaruddin Ajmal receiving a donation for the CM"s Relief Fund. Bora alleged that the BJP"s misrule has brought in an era of atrocities against women.
